When you cross the finish line of your triathlon Swim, you will have swum faster than you have in previous events.
Designed for busy triathletes targetting an Olympic distance or ½ IM event who are looking to compete in an Iron-distance event, the primary goal of this training plan is to prepare you to Swim faster during YOUR event.
Crafted by myself, Ray Boardman PGDipSportsMed, PGDipRehab, PGCertSc (Exercise Science), BSc (Anatomy), DipSportsStudies this plan encapsulates my passion for the sport, my experience from completing dozens of Half and Full IRON-distance finishes and my success coaching hundreds of triathletes.
Starting 12 weeks before the YOUR event, this plan progresses through phases to build you to your peak performance. Each week contains three swims. You will build up to 2,900 metres swimming in a single session so you can get the sessions done quickly. Although not necessary, I recommend using a swimming monitor (eg. Garmin Forerunner 735, 920, or 935) to track your sessions in the pool.
Prior to using this plan, you should be able to complete a swim of 800 meters or yards continuously, and 2,000 metres or yards total within a workout.
Purchase of this plan gives you access to my fortnightly coaching calls where you can ask me any training or racing-related questions.

Training for another race distance? I also have training plans for IRON-distance Triathlons (3.8km Swim/180km Bike/42km Run) and Sprint & Olympic Triathlons plus Running Races (from 5k to marathon), too.
